G.I. Gurdjieff

Sacred Hymns

Label: ECM Records

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

In stock


A series of piano transcriptions of some solemn, now-dark, now-affirmative religious hymns by one G.I. Gurdjieff, with none of the usual flourishes and heady flights usually associated with Keith Jarrett's solo records. Jarrett assumes the proper devotional position, playing with a steady tread but always with attention to dynamic extremes, producing a gorgeously rich piano tone with plenty of bass.

Cat. number: ECM 1174
Year: 2000
Recorded in March 1980 at Tonstudio Bauer, Ludwigsburg
